Welcome this week’s Mamaheart, Charlotte

What does motherhood mean to me?

It is all I ever wanted to be, the only thing I’ve ever wanted to be really good at. It makes me feel complete and utterly insane all at once. Nobody else can drive me from complete frustration to fits of giggles in the space of 5 minutes!

How has motherhood changed you ?

It has made me less selfish without a doubt. More patient , more confident and yet at times more insecure.

What is the biggest joy your children have given you ?

Getting to see and experience things again through their eyes, when they have seen or discovered something new the excitement and joy is contagious.

What is the hardest part of being a mama ?
Knowing that you can’t solve everything , you don’t have a magic wand to wave at life’s problems. Watching them hurt each other. Accepting that just maybe, perhaps , sometimes I’m not always right ;)

What advice would you give to a new mama ?
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Pick your battles wisely, is wearing a coat/having a mucky face/being 5 minutes late really that important? Trying your best is good enough . All your child wants is love and care .
